If your Terminal Server is set up to respect the session limits defined on user objects in Active Directory, then all you need to do is modify the "Sessions" settings on the user object using Active Directory Users and Computers.

But if you're already enforcing session limits, then you will need to use GPO security filtering as @joeqwerty said. You would create a second GPO just for the single user, then set up the filtering so it only applied to that user, and use it to override the settings in the general policy.
